Pastor Steve’s Testimony: A Wretch Like Me

My story is a crazy one. I was a meth addict who sold stereos out of the back of my car in the desert. I was robbed at shotgun point by dealers. I had my face smashed against a steering wheel…and I ultimately challenged the devil to show himself in a field at midnight. I guarantee you that you will not be bored when you listen.

The Normal Christian Life

Many people think that once they become a Christian all their problems will be over. Others think that if they have enough faith they will be healthy, wealthy and wise. But what does Scripture say?

This two part series will help you to understand what Jesus meant when he said, “Follow me.”

If you call yourself a follower of Jesus Christ, if you are a “born again” Christian, this is a foundational teaching that will help you to know what to expect as you live a normal Christian life.
